The Rogue Nation of Wakeopolis is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Wake of Lee with a fair hand, and renowned for its lack of airports, national health service, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.044 billion Wakeopolisians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Administration, and Industry are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wakeleeput. The average income tax rate is 96.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Wakeopolisian economy, worth a remarkable 1,320 trillion Wakebucks a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 187,452 Wakebucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Economists claim no news is good news, the nation refuses to provide international aid, people seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy, and the 'three Rs' have become the 'four Rs' with the addition of Rightful Thought. Crime is totally unknown. Wakeopolis's national animal is the Wallaby, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Wakeopolis is ranked 1,533rd in the world and 57th in The East Pacific for Most Pacifist, with 189.17 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
